Becoming a Student

If you have been attending some of our weekly meditation sessions with regularity, and at least one sesshin and have developed a stable daily meditation practice, at a certain point it may become clear that the next step is to become a formal Zen student. This involves a simple and brief ceremony in which you commit to having Henry as your primary guide along the Zen way, and he commits to doing his best to guide you in Zen for as long as you want him to.

It is something to discuss with our teacher, and may evolve quite naturally as your practice stabilizes and deepens.


Henry offers private dokusan (interviews) for students or those considering becoming a student.  These 10 minute interviews are scheduled through our online scheduling system. Please contact our administrator for more details.
